I was leading the BNP garlic mustard pull at 1, so had to sneak in for the first start at 11:30, with a real need to get in by 12:30 (or at least before 12:45). TIght schedule!, Phew! Shame i couldn't stay to chat with others.
Stas-course, so it was a great and challenging design. Good navigation today, only two navigation issues to speak fo - controls 2 and 3 weren't yet placed, so I had to run around about 6 or more minutes (finding 4 along the way, confirming location) to confirm lack of control. Then on 8 drifted drifted left but fairly quickly recovered (but it cost a lot more climb.
Most legs i opted to go straight, but I think it would be useful to try some alternate routes around. Maybe tomorrow. Got pretty pooped from all the climb around 40 minutes, and gutted it out to finish (mostly uphill). I am a little behind on physical prep - especially with the pig coming up so soon. Stas gave 400m climb, but when I count it up it looks more like 230 or so
